Deepika Padukone looks back at the most relatable character she ever played 

Actress Deepika Padukone has played several amazing characters throughout her 15 year Bollywood journey but her role in Shoojit Sircar's comedy drama 'Piku' stands out among them all. In this film, Deepika played a strong and easily relatable girl next door character and shared amazing chemistry with her co-stars Amitabh Bachchan and Irrfan Khan.

In a recent conversation with PTI, Deepika stated that Piku is the character with which she relates the most. She says, “There was something very special about the energy in that film. I feel I and my sister (Anisha) are at an age where we are Piku. There is something about Piku that is very special. And that’s one of the movies that keep coming up in conversations. The stage of life that I am at now, that seem to be my most favourite (character)."

Talking further about that film, Deepika shared, “I was aware of the fact that I will be opposite these two incredible people but what makes for great collaboration is when you are not competing with your co-stars and you are really genuinely invested in telling a good story and that’s what we are there to do."

“I don’t think Irrfan was trying to be one up on Mr Bachchan or he was trying to be one up on anyone. It was a beautiful collaborative process and we were invested in giving our best," the actress concluded.
